WWE Sign Japanese star KENTA


July 12, 2014 by gorillapressonline


It was announced, at the WWE Japan  house show in Osaka, by WWE legends Hulk Hogan and Jimmy Hart no less, that the company has signed Japanese wrestling superstar Kenta to an NXT developmental deal.

Fans can look forward to matches with the other rumoured signing, and GPO favourite, Prince Devitt, along with prospective matches with the likes of Daniel Bryan in the future.
